Hello my stamping friends! Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop! I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew. Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!
This month's blog hop features the nature-inspired Beyond The Horizons (March 2022) kit. This time of year is always an extra special kit because we are celebrating Paper Pumpkin's birthday! TOOT-TOOT!
Not only do we get a special patterned souvenir box that all of our supplies come in, but this year we received a 2nd stamp set!! This one coordinates with the New Horizons Suite Collection available in the January-June 2022 Mini catalog. Love it when something like this happens...more bang for my buck!
This months kit came with amazing envelopes that are patterned on the outside and a different pattern on the inside. Since the primary neutral color is Basic White, I decided to cut up one of the envelopes and use it as designer series paper. The Pale Papaya is the larger piece that is matted with Old Olive cardstock; and the inside was the Old Olive skinny later. Both layers are adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base (4-1/2 x 11, scored at 5-1/2). Before planting the larger layer, I wrapped some of the beautiful Pale Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon that came with the kit and tied into a bow.
The flower image is set up as a 2-step stamping technique. The solid piece was stamped once, and the outlined image was inked and stamped twice to show contrast between the two images. I hand cut the flower, as well as, the Old Olive leaves that are tucked behind. I popped this floral arrangement with dimensionals and set onto a Stitched So Sweetly Basic White die cut. The sentiment layer mimics one of the punch out pieces with the kit...Basic White that was punched on each edge using the Banners Pick A Punch.
Finish the card by adding the Stitched So Sweetly focal arrangement to the card front with Dimensionals. Now looking at the pictures of my card, I realized that I forgot to sprinkle some of the Iridescent Rhinestones that came with the kit on the card. GEESH! I'll be fixing that as soon as I finish typing this post.
